It looms black and white in the distance; a creature of melancholic despondency. Looking at it, the beauty in its roar's underbelly may be surprising to some, but roar it does; loudly, and with purpose. This roar is of a different kind though- one filled with sorrow, and one of heavy emotion. Each facet is crystal clear; parts of the same whole. The way it ends is most impressive, with lurches and peaks and valleys of the likes previously unheard. In entirety it is almost frightening with depressive atmosphere, but that is said as a positive testament to the success of its purpose. Previous encounters with this creature have elicited similar results, but this is a satisfying and thoroughly engaging one all the same.
The dead end king has arrived, bringing with it a sound of disconsolate sorrow the past has so familiarized us with. Some nice new touches such as female voice accompaniment, ("The One You Are Looking For...") ambient-based beats, ("Leech") and more prominent keyboard melodies ("Dead Letters") all help this creature stand alongside, and yet apart, from its brethren. A couple of parts don't make much impact ("Ambitions," "Undo You") but that is a minor problem. As it stands, this is an excellent arrival and will surely get only better with time. This is a roar of great accomplishment, of fierce emotional impact- and this is one creature not soon forgotten.

lmao! this is so pretentious.
i'm not going to lie, i think this is a terrible review. but you should know that you can't say stuff like "[...]all help this creature stand alongside, and yet apart, from its brethren" and "In entirety it is almost frightening with depressive atmosphere, but that is said as a positive testament to the success of its purpose." without being open to ridicule.
I really wrote this to try and challenge myself... an "out-of-the-box" style review, I guess :P
However, I am open to ridicule and criticism, so hit me with it if you must! I was happy with how it turned out for what it was, but I understand that others might not be. I do appreciate all criticism; I just wanted to try a different style of reviewing than the norm.
Gyromania: Yup, I definitely get what you mean. I typically do my reviews in a more conversationalist tone; this time though I was trying to write in a rather abstract manner. Just an experiment, really... the next review I write will probably be more in line with my typical style. : )
